Loving Love

Bart asked the question the other day

What exactly is love?

So we discussed it and decided on a few things

-It's the point where you know someone cares about you as much as you care about them
-It's a level of comfort knowing someone loves you
-It's feeling complete having your "other half"

and then I added a few more...

It's smiling/laughing randomly because you are thinking of them. (Cheesy? No, it actually happens).

It's knowing how they smell, what their skin feels like and what they are thinking just because you are around them more than any other person in your life.

It's having a best friend. Not only loving that person in a romantic way, but having a fun time together. laughing and joking and giving each other a hard time just the way friends do.

It's spending time with them not because you don't have anyone else, but because you are your best person when they are around.

Bart and I have been friends for 3 years. We know everything about each other. We give each other a hard time and make fun of each other when something stupid happens. I make him put socks on at night because his feet are like mini ice packs. He deals with me talking in my sleep and hogging all the covers. We eat a bowl of cereal every morning together and try to be polite even though it's 6:30 a.m. Our lives mesh so well and I love it.

I don't claim to know what love is for everybody, but I know what it is to me.
